In my journey towards success and personal improvement, I’ve learned a lot of things. One of the major things I learned is the importance of knowing where to put my focus on. As Jim Rohn often says, focus on one thing. Don’t focus on minor things if you want to accomplish major things. Learn to identify what’s truly important.
If we want to succeed in achieving our dreams, we need to develop this habit of focusing on major things. These are the things that are not necessarily urgent but important in the sense that if we keep putting these off, the more we delay our progress towards success and personal growth.
Of course, it definitely won’t be easy to keep our focus on what’s really important. Oftentimes, we encounter all sorts of distractions. These are the minor things that we often do without even thinking if it actually relates to a bigger goal.
More often than not, we do things like checking emails or social media when instead we can do some actual work and get it done way ahead of deadline. If we truly take into account the things we do in a day, we can evaluate whether or not the majority of the tasks that we do are truly important or are merely distractions.
Before I end this post, I strongly encourage you to practice being mindful about where you put your focus on. Some things may keep us busy throughout the day but don’t really contribute to what we should be doing to achieve our goals.
